I started playing “party” bridge for the first time when I moved to Sierra Vista in 2020.
In the fall of 2013 my good friend and my bridge mentor, Margaret Glenn, convinced me to try bridge at our local club –Thunder Mountain. In November of 2013 I went with Margaret to my first bridge tournament in Tucson. While there she persuaded me to join the ACBL. I earned 12 masterpoints in Tucson. I was ecstatic and I was hooked!
Through the years Margaret has spent hours with untold patience mentoring me. I can’t thank her enough. My thanks also to our most constant partners at tournaments Jan Dragoo and Mary Blanchard.
While I enjoy playing bridge online with a partner I must say playing with a crazed robot is a challenge.
I try to play bridge three times a week at Thunder Mountain Bridge Club in Sierra Vista, AZ which I sincerely hope can re-open. We also play at the High Desert Hands Bridge Club of Sunsites.
I love going to tournaments, meeting new and seeing old friends, enjoying new places and new restaurants as well.
We bridge lovers all hope in this ever-changing world that the game we love so much will survive.
